Every year here at Detailed Image we start to prep for the holiday season and the Black Friday/Cyber Monday rush. The holiday season comes fast, but seems to go by even faster! This year was no exception and in the blink of an eye, another holiday season down and another year down for the Ask-a-Pro Blog! This year we added new authors Rodney Tatum of Mirror Reflections Auto Spa, Jeff McEachran of Gyeon USA and we have two new authors to keep an eye out for in the coming months. 2017 was a fantastic year for the blog and we could not have done it without the support of our great readers, so thank you! We hope you enjoyed hearing the unique insights and reviews on products, new ways to perform detailing steps, SEMA coverage and the many more topics covered on the blog in 2017. Below are some of the best articles published this past year from each of the AAP authors.
Here is to an even better 2017!
